Harvard University to offer "Black is Queen" course inspired by Black is King

Klaudia//January 31, 2021
Harvard University will have a course that will explore powerful women called "Black is Queen: the Divine Feminine in Kush", inspired by Beyoncé's “Black is King” visual album.

Black Is Queen: The Divinie Feminine in Kush
Date: Thursday, March 25, 2021, 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Location: Online

Solange Ashby, Adjunct Professor, Department of Classics and Ancient Studies, Barnard College

The prominence of powerful goddesses and queens in the Nubian Kingdom of Kush (now Northern Sudan) highlights the unusually high status of women in this ancient African society and serves as a fitting focus for the study of female power in the ancient world. Using temple inscriptions found in Egypt and Nubia, the rich funerary goods found in royal burials, and temple and tomb imagery, Solange Ashby will discuss how ancient Africans of the Nile Valley understood female power and presence. Songs from Beyoncé’s recent production “Black Is King” will be woven into this presentation on Kushite queens to emphasize the power and centrality of the African queen mother in her royal family and kingdom.

Presented with support from the Marcella Tilles Memorial Fund
